Hello, Oregon! The Fall 2015 Release Tour of Oregon’s Rockstar Entrepreneurs kicked off with a packed house in Bend on September 1st and rocked out to a large crowd here at Hatch Lab in Portland a few days later. The newest CPO company, Baker City Saddles, made an appearance at Baker City’s monthly Pub Talk while we continued down the the I5 Corridor leg for stops in Corvallis and Eugene, and wound up in Klamath Falls for CPO panel and vendor appearances during the annual Rural Innovation and Business Summit. Hatch’s own Amy Pearl gave the lunch keynote on Friday, September 18th.

Since the start of the tour $15,000 has been invested in Oregon businesses by the community.


Next up, two stops on the beautiful Oregon Coast — See you there!
